    Any kind of nuts and chocolate may be a less than ideal choice if people have allergies or are lactose intolerant. I’m not allergic but I avoid chocolate for non serious medical reasons. Plus, an edible favor will be long gone and forgotten too soon 🙁 I love the idea of a candle. Maybe have the same candle scents for favors as you have for your ceremony. Then when they encounter that scent in years to come, they’ll be reminded of your wedding! And they can keeep the jar as a keep sake.

    @happycamper8:  Hmmm. . . I would pick the candle, but would also say to absolutely stay away from any scents in them. I’m very sensitive to fragrances and most candle scents– even natural ones– bother me. The last wedding I went to had scented candles as part of the centerpieces and the smell completely overpowered the whole venue– not great for enjoying dinner. :/

    I like the nut candy idea too. . . but of course there will always be people who can’t or won’t eat it. I think with favors, you’ll end up with a number of them being left no matter what.

    @happycamper8:  I voted edible but the candle could be a great option for those with a nut allergy (Plus you get to craft something fun!)

    I always think Food is better 😀 but myabe something basic (without nuts) as many people are either alergic or hate them. But i would def. go with something edible

    We made our own mason jar candles. They were awesome and over a year later people still ask if we have any more. For us they were also place cards and whatever entree the guest chose dictated the color of ribbon on their jar. It was actually my husband’s idea to make them. We had originally bought the jars to do cupcake in a jar,  but our wedding cake was pricey. We didn’t want people to think the cupcakes were their dessert.
